hello! i really love this. amazing blurry background! amazing details! i hope you can tell what kind of board you used? do you mean bristol board? if it is, is it any different from smooth vellum? thank you very much :3

:iconmjwilliam:
MJWilliam Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! :) To answer your question, I use Arches cold press art board: [link] . I've tried other cold press illustration boards, but none compare.

thank you. i have run out of watercolor paper and got some bristol (art shop owner tells me it is vellum) as an alternative. i see in you other works that you have used bristol. so i hope it will do fine under water.

In my experience, Bristol is fine for mixed media where you use watercolor washes as a base for other media (colored pencils, in my case). I feel it absorbs water media too quickly. Arches board is more versatile, even if you make a mistake you can just apply a lot of water and blot it out. And the best part is, it doesn't buckle. :)
